Bids to open three new restaurants in Salisbury
THREE new restaurants are set to open in Salisbury.
A planning application has already been approved for a restaurant on the corner of Milford Street and Queen Street, which is currently operating as QS clothing store, and two more applications for eateries have been submitted for consideration by Wiltshire Council.
QS is still trading at the moment, but documents submitted to the council said discussions with a “well-established family high street restaurant operator”
interested in the property had taken place.
Permission for a change of use for the ground and first floor was granted in August but the agent said he could not comment on what restaurant might open in the premises.
And in Queen Street developers are looking to turn the ground and first floors of a Grade II* building that housed Thomas Cook until it closed on August 30, into a restaurant, while the second and third floors would continue to be used as offices.
The intended occupier is Wildwood, an expanding group of restaurants that serve freshly-prepared, locally-sourced food – mainly grilled dishes, pasta and pizza.
The chain estimates the new restaurant would provide 40 full and part-time jobs.
The consultation period on the application ends today and a decision is expected by the end of the month.
The third application to go before planners is for The Old George, a former inn in Rollestone Street.
The building has been used as offices in the past but is currently vacant.
Some local businessmen are seeking permission to turn it into a high-quality Indian restaurant.
The consultation period ends October 31 and a decision is expected by the end of November.
